Closer pattern tile spacing can allow shallower depths. Pattern tiling in the past was placed as far apart as 100’. With this wide tile spacing, tile had to be dug in 4.5’ to 5’ deep. This caused a delay in response time and wetness between the tile lines. With 50’ to 60’ spacings, tile can be placed at depths from 3.25’ to 3.75’ deep causing a fast response time. This faster response time will help root development and formability of the ground.
